More than 25 years experience in pharmaceutical industry.

Now, for more than 6 years in bio-tech (pharma) industry, and more specific in orphan drugs.

Introducing an innovative drug, to the specialists (mainly hematology and nephrology) in University and non-university hospitals.

Focus on providing scientific/medical information, building a solid network of effective and trustful relationships and increasing disease and diagnostic awareness with targeted accounts.

My communication- and presentation skills are effective and my interpersonal skills and ability to network are excellent.

I am a responsible person, love to learn and take care of people. I am a team player.

I have a high interest in scientific knowlegde and have a patient oriented attitude.


Current Experience

  • Regional Account Manager Flanders (Belgium North)
    Since June 2009

    Started in June 2009 with  introducing the first terminal complement inhibitor (Eculizumab) to the hematologists for a rare disease: Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH).

    Since 2013 the same drug is also introduced to nephrologists to treat another orphan disease: atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS).

    My high interest in scientific knowledge and my excellent interpersonal skills and ability to network helped me in a successful launch of this orphan drug into the market. I organised a lot of meetings in and outside hospitals, conducted screening projects, participated in national and international congresses. I educate physicians on those rare diseases and help them to create access to the drug for patients who are suffering from those ultra-rare diseases.
